SAEM is teaming up with us and exclusively sponsoring the AIR Series

SAEM sponsors AIR series

The Society of Academic Emergency Medicine (SAEM) is now the exclusive, multi-year sponsor of the Approved Instructional Resources (AIR) Series! This series has curated and graded open-access blog posts and podcasts in the field of EM since 2014 to identify and provide high quality, social media-based, educational resources for EM residents. It is one the most used resources for Individualized Interactive Instruction (III) credit, and plus it is free!  We look forward to working more with SAEM, who shares our grand vision for medical education.

This aligns perfectly with our recently re-launched ALiEMU “be free to learn” learning management platform, which houses all of the AIR modules as well as the Capsule Series and In-Training Exam Quizzes. Check out the entire Course Catalog. We can’t wait to share with you the new upcoming content.

Residents and medical students within the same “class”? No problem. Pharmacy students doing peer-teaching around the world? No problem. Your program is not listed in our drop-down menu? We got rid of that requirement to form teams. The possibilities are endless.
